Five years separated my undergraduate career at the University of Texas at Austin and my graduate school training at The State University of New York in Albany.  During that time I moved from Austin to New York City, all the while working at being a painter.  Following graduate school I moved to Connecticut, where I live today. Over the following ten years my work developed in a more conceptual direction, though some critical notions regarding the nature of painting continue to be central to my investigations.  This conceptually oriented work has been featured in exhibitions at Real Art Ways, Hartford, CT, the De Cordova Museum in Lincoln, MA, the New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, CT, P.S.1 in Long Island City, NY, the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, CT and the Housatonic Museum of Art in Bridgeport, CT.

Throughout this post-graduate period I have made my living practicing a non-art related trade.  At the same time I taught in an adjunct capacity for the Graduate Liberal Studies Program at Wesleyan University, then later (and currently) at Manchester Community College, in Manchester, CT.

Hands are how we interact with the world around us. They connect us to the physical and the sensory. Hands tell us whether objects are hot or cold, soft or hard, scratchy or fuzzy. Hands that are playing, building, digging, planting, making or creating intrigue me; the creation of one’s own loving art, made with the tools that we all possess. This collection focuses on the musicians’ hands from the Hartford Symphony Orchestra (HSO). I was fortunate enough to be able to attend several HSO rehearsals and watch them up close and personal. Hearing a symphony live from the audience is an incredible experience. Being able to watch the dexterity and speed of their fingers and hands is quite different. Focusing solely on the hands brings attention to personal preferences; how they hold their instrument, the callus they have on that finger, the way they hold their pinky on the one note. Watching them play up close is a personal and intimate experience with the musician. The symphony itself is an event of many hands working independently of one another to create one whole experience that is larger than the sum of its parts. On the other hand, this show is an intimate look at the individuality of that whole.
